IMO not sure if Shep could have blanketed DeGoey as well as Schoey. That was one of the best performances for a negating backman I've ever seen considering the talents of DeGoey. Maybe Shep would have been slotted into Cole's spot instead?I was stoked for JK, and Masto , but I was even more thrilled for LeCras/Hurn/Schofield. They were all on our list during the mid 2000s era. LeCras goes out on a high and Hurn has become a deserving premiership captain in the twilight of his career. Schofield played well (at least as well as poor Shepp probably would have) and walks away with a deserved premiership after being loyal fringe for much of his career. I am glad that Graham got a flag with us as an assistant after his 2006 heartache.
The hard luck stories are NicNat/Shepp (I feel for Gaff too, just not as much as the other two. He is also more likely to have time on his side) , but most of all, Priddis
Fantastic how everyone played a role with no passengers. Up the Eagles!
